The series, which will debut in 2022, will follow the last four decades of the Lakers franchise and feature interviews with legendary players and coaches including Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Phil Jackson and Pat Riley. It will also feature archival footage and never-before-seen interviews with the late Lakers owner, Jerry Buss.
Starting from Jerry Buss’ acquisition of the Lakers in 1979, the docuseries will chronicle the team’s championship-winning “Showtime” era, the incredible successes of Kobe Bryant and O’Neal and the rebirth of the team, now led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
The project is from Lakers CEO and controlling owner Jeanie Buss, director Antoine Fuqua with Fuqua Films, Haven Entertainment and Los Angeles Media Fund. Buss and Fuqua executive produce alongside Kevin Mann, Michael Mann, Brendan Bragg, Jeffrey Soros, Simon Horsman,
